> Global Electric Powertrain Market Expected to reach a high CAGR by 2028: DataM Intelligence


Market Overview

The global electric powertrain market size was worth US$ XX Million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2021-2028).

A powertrain system of integrated components generates power to propel the vehicle and deliver it to the wheels. It is the most important part of the vehicle. An electric powertrain consists of a battery pack as the power source, an AC/DC converter that converts the DC supplied of the battery into AC for the electric motor, which supplies the power to the wheels for propelling the vehicle forward and the on-board charger, which is used for recharging the battery pack. The battery management system monitors the battery condition and ensures its operation within safe parameters.

Market Dynamics

The demand for the electric powertrain is driven by the more comprehensive and ever-growing adoption of electric vehicles as consumers become ever more climate-conscious and the drive to decarbonize transportation gathers pace. The high cost of electric powertrains prevents the wider adoption of EVs and represents a key challenge for the growth of this market.

Growing adoption of electric vehicles

Consumers and governments globally are becoming more climate-conscious. A major push is underway to decarbonize transportation to avoid the most severe effects of global warming and man-made climate change. Recently, at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow in November 2021, many governments have pledged net-zero carbon emission targets for the middle of the century. It is bound to accelerate the adoption of carbon-free mobility solutions such as Electric Vehicles (EV).

The increasing adoption of EVs will significantly boost, particularly in laggard markets such as South America, the Middle East and Africa. The growing adoption of EVs will accentuate the need for electric powertrain infrastructure and accessories such as charging cables. Many leading EV developers, such as Tesla and Ford Motor Company, Mercedes-Benz AG, BMW AG, General Motors, invest significantly in researching and developing new electric powertrain infrastructure and technologies.

High cost of electric powertrains

Electric powertrains are expensive, primarily due to the high cost of the lithium-ion battery pack, which is an integral part of the powertrain. Lithium extraction and refinement utilize advanced processes to obtain the metal's purest form. Lithium-ion batteries also require the use of rare-earth elements such as Neodymium and Praseodymium, which further drives up the cost of the battery pack.

The high costs drive up the price of Electric Vehicles (EV). A mid-size EV sedan is at least 3 to 4 times more expensive than a similar-sized conventional sedan. The high price limits EVs to the premium segment of the market and prevents the wider adoption by low and middle-income consumers. The high cost of electric powertrains presents a major challenge for the growth of this market.

COVID-19 impact analysis

The EV industry experienced sharp declines in production and sales in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Various governments-imposed lockdowns globally to curb the pandemic's spread and many manufacturers had to suspend operations temporarily. Industrial manufacturing is a highly capital-intensive business and thus, many component manufacturers were facing bankruptcy. Vehicle production resumed in a limited capacity after lifting the lockdowns.

The COVID-19 pandemics' knock-on effects on the global supply chains have caused shortages of essential components for the EV industry. It has led to long lead times and reduced production rates, even after the complete lifting of pandemic-related restrictions. The pandemic will have a negligible impact on the long-term growth of the electric powertrain market since the demand for EVs remains strong and will continue to grow significantly in the coming years.

Segment Analysis

The electric powertrain market is segmented on component, powertrain type, vehicle type, end-user and region. The global electric powertrain market is segmented into passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles and heavy commercial vehicles based on the end-user. Passenger vehicles are leading in this segment since they make up most of the all-electric vehicle sales, far outpacing commercial vehicle sales.

Global Electric Geographical Analysis

Asia-Pacific is leading in the global electric powertrain market. The region accounts for the largest market share, primarily due to the presence of China, as it is the biggest EV producer globally. China produced about 4.6 million vehicles from 2010 to 2020 and accounted for 44% of the EVs sold during the same period. Many new domestic and global companies are setting up new factories or expanding their presence in the Chinese market. The most notable instance is Tesla setting up an integrated full-cycle production factory in Shanghai in 2020.
